Tampa, Fin., Jan. 0.—A private tele-
gram from liana van, says: The Whole

of the capital. An attack Is apprehend
€(1 and ev< ry effort Is being made to
protect surburban approaches. The
Cubans believe the end of the revolu-
tion is approaching a>nd say that Cam-

It is judged from the movements of
t'he insurgents along the north coast
in Plnar L)el Rio that they are now en-
deavoring to penetrate the rich district
of sugar plantations about Cananas by
way of Bams and Ouanajay roads.
The authorities again announce that
tlhey have hop . of bringing on a gener-
al engagement and that the troops are
«o placed at strategic points that the
insurgents will finil their inisition bad-
ly compromised, and will find it dif-
ficult to avoid a ! t tie.
Along t'he line of the railway running !
couth from Havana, it is learned that
the insurgents hav destroyed sixteen
culverts, thus effectively cutting off i
communication for the time being.
Word was received from Matanzas ;
that the insurgents are still active in
that province. Pose Maceo and Kabi j
aiv reported to be moving in th«• Ti'in'l- j
dad district of Sanita Clara. In the
Cardenas district th<• Insure nts also
destroyed the station at Altinasial and
tore up the railroad at Yagauara.

Pes Moines, la., Jan. J'.—The legisla-
ture of Iowa meets here Jan. 13, This
is the twenty-sixth general assembly,
making the semi-centennial of t'he ex-
istence of Iowa as a state, and it wiJl
•be a very important session because tthe
entire code will be revised. The legis-
lature two years ago created a com-
mls-ion, consisting of five lawyers, to
e ni'fy the laws and present a report
to the next legislature. This commis-
sion has been at work nearly fifteen
months altogether, and has finished its
work, which 'has cost the state nearly
$30,000. The memibers of the commis-
sion are: Jdhn Y. Stone. Glen wood,
ex-attorney general; Dmlln McClain,
chancellor of t!he law department of t'he
F'l'aite university; Charles Baker, Iowa
City; H. F. Dale, Des Moines, and H.
S. Wins low, Newtoin. It was the In-
tention of the legislature th ' com-
mi.-slon should rearrange the laws as
they exist strike o-ut obsolete stations
and those in con flic, and suggest mln-

vacillating In some cases, bluffing and
rowdy-like In other instances, but in
every case relying upon the 'kind as-

mentioned speculation, towever, has
very frequently proved a failure. The
powers have looked through England's

of etching England's chestnuts from the

sions and African raids. No sensible
power is apt to lend assistance."

Washington, P C . Jan. <°.—The Re-
publican senators went into caucus at
10:30 today, but adjourned at 12 to
meet after the conclusion of the day's
session pt the senate. The entire time
of the caucus was con.sur.icd in discus-
sing the proposed amendments to the
tariff bill, but no formal expression was
secured upon any of them.
The caucus appeared to act harmoni-
ously except i.n one or two instances.
Mr. Raker, the new senator from Kan-
sas, made a vigorous speech in opposi-
tion to the h 'ii.-;1 hill if before
the senate unamended. He said that if
any tariff legislation was to be enacted
he thought it should be done on the
Republican and protection lines and
added that he did not regard the house
bill as a Republican measure. He also
advised against any tariff legislation,
saying that he favored a course of non-
action in that respect In view of the
declaration of the administration that
the present tariff would afford all the
revenue needed. II^ th ught. however,
that if any legislation Should be at-
tempted at th • :';ne, hinges should

of the evidence for the plaintiff a mo-

now in the hands of the sheriff under
an attachment by the creditors, and
which is virtually bankrupt. Th" ag-
